King Bearings are very good. Make sure the top half has a hole in it too! (I assume the hole for main bearing oiling in the upper block half) I do not wash bearings at all. Wipe the dust off them and lube the bearing side with quality assembly lube. Keep the back dry and slip them in. Loosen all the mains first and tighten after all the top halfs are in, this will allow you a little clearance to slip the bearings in. Plastigauge new ones, make sure you can turn motor over after assembly. Dont forget to prime motor and fill filter before start up.
